    Link: World`s Smallest One-Person Helicopter - It`s not nearly as cool, yet I think I`d take this over the jetpack.

    That would be completely awesome if it didn`t convey a 0% survival chance if something went wrong...

    Ha!
    I`d so fail at that.

    On a completely different note.. there are fuzzy things floating in the street outside my window.
    Hmm.

    A good prank to play on someone is to siphon out all but "just enough" fuel from the tank before they take it out for a ....er...spin.

    WANT!

    Um...
    can I borrow $58,000 from anyone...?

    (btw, I`m pretty sure it comes with a parachute. Or a hole-free cloth of some sort.

    Wow. Seems like they would have to designate certain places for these to park. The gas would probably be expensive, too. Other than that...

    I. WANT. IT. NOW.

    Haha! "To the Petercopter!"

    Just reminds me of family guy..

    I can`t even drive a car safely, I doubt I`d trust myself in that.

    They should install an ejection seat in case something happens.

    "That can`t be legal...!"

    In the US it would probably be classified as an ultalight aircraft and be legal for anybody to pilot.

    Ultralight FAA rules

    You guys think this is cheap? Fifty-eight grand seems like an awful lot for a lawnmower engine and a propellor.

    You don`t need a parachute or an ejection seat, dumbass. Deployment would be a nightmare anyhow. The nice thing about helicopters is you can autorotate if the engine fails. Bigger birds can only do a successful autorotation from above 200 ft or so, but I bet this little one could make a non-life-threatening landing after loss of power from any altitude. Pretty cool and WAY safer than a jet pack! Cheaper too, especially on fuel.

    I want one too, that would be awesome. Flying over all of the losers in rush hour traffic. You`d just have to go high enough to get around, and landing with loss of power wouldn`t be a big deal. You could do it safely. That would rock.

    I`d rather buy a gyrocopter. Cheaper, safer, and much more confortable and you can take a friend!
